Question 1989 f250 slave cylinder removal

Have a buddy coming over tomorrow to replace the slave cylinder in his 1989 f250 4x4. He said the bellhousing and trans are one piece?? The slave is leaking badly (says not line or junction, but from cylinder itself). Thing is this, the slave is an "inline". Not sure on terminology but it is inside the bell. Has an integrated throwout. I've never dealt with this style before. So, plan is to remove d-shafts, support TC/trans/bellhousing assembly, remove crossmember and finally bell to block bolts. Should pull out of clutch with this slave intact mounted to the trans/bell over the input shaft, right? Anything i should know ahead of time or watch for? Anything I'm missing? Don't want to tie the garage up for more than one day as my jeep trans is about ready to install. Thanks in advance.

sounds about right the slave should just unbolt from the housing once off and the new one should bolt back on.. just be careful of the slave lines. going through the side of the bell housing..

is it a 4 or 5spd?

the 4spd slave cylinder is on the outside of the trans, and the bellhousing and trans are two different pieces

if it is on the inputshaft, getting the hydralic line off can be a bitch, the "tool" is part of the line, there is a plastic collar that needs to be pushed in(similar to AC tools) this is easiest with a small pocket screwdriver

Get yourself a small pipe/tubing cutter, the kind that has a wheel and needs to spin around the pipe. Place the cutter 3/4" from the end of the slave cylinder fitting. Cut the ring off and the hose should pop out without problem, but DO NOT CUT THE HOSE, cut the gold or blue anodized fitting. I've done this a few times taking a leaky internal slave out. You most likely will have the ZF 5sp and its a heavy pig with the transfercase attached, do yourself the favor and split them. Again Ive done this a few times on different trucks and it sucks if you keep the two together. The frame bolts are 15MM and the nuts are 18MM, 12MM 12pt on the driveshaft to differential, I dont remember the exhaust manifold bolt size. Hope these pointers help.

Thanks all... went without a hitch. The hose end was good, so we just used a small punch to remove the pin and was able to plug-n-play the new slave. About 20 pumps to prime and off to the races. Thanks for the help!
